(Newser) – Lindsey Vonn won her third straight overall World Cup title today, becoming the most accomplished skier the United States has ever had. "I gave it all I had. I have nothing more," Vonn says. "I am the most successful American ever and I am very, very happy." Vonn said she would skip Saturday's slalom because "my body is broken." She finishes the season with a US-record 11 wins, four of which came in her seven super-G races.
